Bio

Bev Wasserman Band plays Indie Rock with a twist. A Blues-filled, soulful, Jazz-infused twist. Presenting their own, well crafted arrangements of music plucked from Rock, Folk, Jazz and Blues roots, the Band’s harmonic interpretations have evolved from the collective and eclectic musical backgrounds of its members.

Bev Wasserman
Bev has always had a voice that stood out from the crowd. As a child, she sang in choirs at school and in church. Early in her career she was the lead singer for the bands, Touches of Love and Fully Committed, among others.
She was the lead vocalist for noted Denver-based Jazz Sax player Laura Newman with her band AOA in the early 1990‘s and worked with numerous other bands through Pro-Entertainment Events, in Colorado.
“My aunt was an opera singer for the New York Met,” she says, noting that music runs in her family. “And my grandmother, Jewell Belle, toured St. Louis, Chicago and Detroit regularly as a singer and pianist in Big Bands. Her voice was big. To me, she was like a better version of Ella Fitzgerald… she was that good.”
Bev’s voice stands alone—in a class by itself—a fitting tribute to her venerable musical heritage. Her rendition of songs, powerfully driven from a place deep within her soul, lifts her audiences, elevating senses, bringing cascading light beams to the music of The Bev Wasserman Band.

Chris Sheafor
"As a guitarist, Chris is sublime," says Band member Bruce Wasserman. "He's always there... just the right note, the perfect cords."
Coming from a musical family—his mother is a singer, his grandfather made his living playing trumpet in Dixieland bands and all of his kids are musicians—Chris has a rock solid foundation for his music. His band, Sheafor, had a niche that combined rock in a folksy style with a punch. And he's a veteran of rhythm and blues as his role with Lee Holiday and the Time Off—an edgy R&B group playing the Front Range—shows. But his experience doesn't end there. Stints with numerous other groups, including Tuku, Bregstown and as a bassist for The Moonlighting Teachers, bring to light the amazing versatility Chis brings to the Band in his dance with strings.
His guitar and transitional bass roles are poetry in any key, adding a wonderful sense of point and counterpoint to the music of The Bev Wasserman Band.

Bruce Wasserman:
“At age fifteen I was filling my piggy bank with cash as the lead singer in a garage band—part of the organic mass of music raising up in Northern California at that time,” Wasserman says. “It was rock and blues. But for me, it was always blues. The harmonica wooed me—but it wasn’t the hard edged Chicago style blues harp that spoke to my soul, it was the faint whisper from the back rooms of old cabins in the South, well worn frets and overblown reeds making melodies that came straight from the heart. That blues grabbed my soul and wouldn’t let go.”
The vein of music runs deep in Bruce’s family—brother Rob Wasserman, who’s performed with such greats as Bob Weir, David Grisman, Jerry Garcia, Van Morrison and Lou Reed, is one of the world’s best bassists. And Bruce’s sister, Cindy, has seen rising success with her band, Dead Rock West.
Bruce has sat in with numerous bands since his garage band days, doing a ten year stint playing western folk music, then later sitting in with jazz, blues and rock bands before joining the Bev Barber Band, which became the Bev Wasserman Band in 2012. His soulful harp, distinctive vocals and blues guitar picking add to the composite that makes the Bev Wasserman Band unique.
